In Time: Remorse

In Time: Remorse
March 1, 2012 11 Comments Writing Stephanie Ayers

Viola knelt in the middle of a cemetery. The gray tombstone felt cold under hands. A single tear filled her eye and spilled down her cheek. She ignored it. She breathed deeply, letting air fill her chest and empty in a trembling exhale. Her nostrils flared and her head bowed. Her eyes fixed on the name carved into the stone before closing. Her head lifted to the sky as more tears cascaded down her face. Her broken heart thumped painfully in her chest.

“I’m so sorry, Cage!” Viola cried, her torment revealed in her whisper. “Oh, how I miss you.”

It’s time for another 100 Word Song. This week, jester queen got to choose the song. It was hauntingly beautiful Bonnie Raitt version of Dimming of the Day. In exactly 100 words, this is what I was inspired to write.

Haven’t kept up with the story? No worries. You can find the newest pieces and meet Viola just by clicking here.

I welcome and appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to share your thoughts on this short piece in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by!

    interesting…so Viola regrets her drastic actions…yes, trying to kill someone could be a bad idea if you actually love them 🙂

      Thanks, Deb. I had a tear or two myself while writing this, so I’m glad the emotion came through.

    That last line “oh how I miss you”. You would never guess how she came to be there from this portrait of her. Well done!
